A five-day high-level conference between Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) and Myanmar Police Force (MPF) will begin at Nay Pyi Taw in Myanmar today.
The conference will end on April 10, said a BGB press release signed by its Public Relations Officer Mohsin Reza yesterday.
Preventing inflow of narcotics, particularly yaba; curbing terrorism; end to firing at borders; illegal crossing; repatriation of Bangladesh and Myanmar nationals are some of the agendas that will dominate the meeting.
Besides, issues of border patrolling -- jointly by Bangladesh and Myanmar forces -- and regional-level flag meetings will also get priority.
BGB Director General Major General Md Shafeenul Islam will lead the 11-member Bangladesh team while the 17-member Myanmar team will be headed by Police Brigadier General Myo Than, chief of police general staff of Myanmar, the BGB press release adds.
The Bangladesh delegation will comprise high officials of the Prime Minister's Office and home and foreign ministries. Marking the conference, BGB DG would pay a courtesy call on Myanmar home minister and chief of Myanmar police.
